Why Not? — Failure

Posted on: June 10, 2011

Below text is from an old advertisement for Nike, in the words of the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan. It is titled ‘Failure’ and is one of the most watched videos and most quoted words in the history of television / internet:

I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career.

I have lost almost 300 games.

Twenty-six times I have been trusted to take the game-winning short… and missed.

I have failed over and over and over again in my life.

And, that is why I succeed.
